My 3 1/2 year old has asthma and severe allergies. He's also lactose intolerant and has a sensory processing disorder with anxiety. He also gets unexplained hives randomly, less often now that he's on daily allergy medication and benedryl helps for the break through hives. His allergist suspects it's possibly a sign of an autoimmune disease or thyroid dysfunction. What are autoimmune diseases? What was she suggesting his could have? How would it be treated? How do you treat thyroid issues in children? How serious are they? I have hyperthyroidism and my father has hypothyroidism. Thank you!

I think there's a pretty large number of autoimmune diseases out there, and I have no idea the differences between them - I'd recommend talking to her for come clarifiction, or getting a referral to someone who specializes in such issues!   

As with anything, I'm sure the severity and treatment of thyroid issues would vary on a case by case basis.  Given that you and your father both have thyroid issues, I'd say it's definitely worth exploring a little further. 

Either way, I'd look into meeting with a specialist.  Good luck, I hope you get some answers!

I'm waiting for all the blood work to come back then she was going to discuss further with us. My dad's thyroid issue didn't start until he was over 40. My thyroid stuff didn't start until 24... Isn't my 3 year old a little young? 


Thank you!

Check out www.researchmoringa.com. This is 3rd party information on Moringa Oleifera. Research is from John Hopkins University, National Institute Of Health, ect. You can also check out pubmed.gov. I no longer suffer with allergies or sinuses. I know people in my area and have read testimonies on how this has helped people with asthma, auto-immune diseases, and thyroid (+ much more). It goes to show, you put the right nutrition in, your body will self correct. It's worth taking a look at. It's changing people's lives. If you need more info or have questions, please don't hesitate to message me. You can also email me at tdlaws78@gmail.com. I would love to help. :-)
